How did your season go

Just wondering how everyone out there feels about how their season went, did you meet or exceed your expectations? We feel pretty good about our season we would have loved to have done better and are really looking forward to next year with higher expectations.

We cooked less this year than the previous (lack of sponsorship)... but with two less GC's we still got our Jack Draw! Winning pork there really capped the year for us. We started the year with our first 180 in chicken; and a GC at Smokin' on Big Creek. So even though we cooked less, and had less overall wins. We had some huge successes, and are very happy with our year. I hope we can do well next year, We will have the butt to butt, chest to chest, and hopefully some other excitement along the way! (including a visit by BPS)

Congrats Matt!! Once you get the consistency down (which it looks like you have :)), your Grand will come.

We got 6 RGCs the year before we got our first GC. Bet you get it this year.;)

Well if everything works out right, in the next month or so.... we may have something you can try to help with that chicken. :)


Great job everyone!
I am told Smokin Yankees took 1st in chicken for CBBQA 2010 (on the MAK of coarse :) ).
I have said it before, that competition cooking is a lot of work, be proud!
